There is a game

A game that can be rather lame

What is this game you may ask?

Well, I'll tell you without a mask

The name of this game is life

Where yes, you can get a wife

But the point of the matter is

You're playing the game, just without the fizz

We're all just pawns in this game of life

But please try not gibe me any strife

The point is all of these pawns either die off from selfishness or they will believe they matter

So, please coose the latter

Becasue no matter what they say

You matter every day

The author's comments:

I came up with this while I was ironically trying to write another comical poem. It wound up turning into a philosphy about being you. You matter no matter what anyone else says. I write this now trying to send a message to everyone who reads this that YOU do matter.
